Get the Look: Bold Blues From the Spring/Summer 2014 RunwaysGet A Head Start on Spring's Hottest Trend
NYFW is in full swing, and after drooling over all of the rich bursts of navy and cobalt that seemed to take over the Spring/Summer 2014 runways, one thing is clear: Feeling blue never looked so good.
At Phillip Lim (above), the designer chose to complement structured white dresses and boxy tops with cool pops of blue, inspired by the elements. (He even covered the floor with rocky white crystals making me immediately regret wearing open-toed booties, but I digress.)
Donna Karan was no different, and the designer (who just celebrated DKNY’s 25th anniversary) sent a slew of midnight blue down the runway in the form of day-to-night dresses, jackets, and skirts.
And while we loved all of the aqua-hued crop tops at Peter Som—sorry ladies, that trend isn’t going anywhere—incorporating a bright pop of the on-trend shade into your Spring/Summer wardrobe may be an easier way to stay on trend. (You can also browse his first collaboration with Kohl’s next Spring for more wallet-friendly versions, too!)
Of course, there’s no need to wait until 2014 to test out this trend. With the right accessory, you can instantly update any outfit in no time. That’s why we’re majorly in love with this Lia Sophia Cosmic Dust necklace with resin stones in navy blue, white, and lilac. Use it to update a LWD this summer, or pair it with your favorite chunky knit sweater when the weather turns. Here’s the best part: This little sparkler rings in under $200. Needless to say, I had to get my hands on one stat. Stay tuned to see how I wore it during NYFW!—AMANDA LIBBY
